We are joining police services across the Province in supporting the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police’s (OACP) 2014 Crime Prevention Campaign, which focuses on promoting citizens’ role in preventing crime and building safe and healthy communities.
“We believe that strong, safe, and healthy communities are built when citizens partner with their police service in preventing criminal acts before they happen. Our goal is to raise public awareness and empower people throughout our communities to become involved in their personal safety and that of their neighbors, friends, and co-workers.”
The campaign features an informational crime prevention booklet that will be used by police services to promote local crime prevention initiatives. Topics covered in the “Your Community. Your Safety. Get involved” booklet, include getting involved in local crime prevention initiatives and programs, when to call 9-1-1, securing your home or business from break-ins and other property crimes, vigilance against on-line fraud, identification theft, and other cybercrimes, and guarding against vehicle theft.
